Toyotas are known for their reliability, but regular maintenance helps extend their life. Although for some model years of Toyota’s large sedan, the Avalon, Toyota claims the fuel filter doesn’t need changing, most mechanics would disagree. Since their job is to keep the fuel system clean of debris, periodic replacement is on a weekend mechanic’s must-do list. On the Avalon, changing the filter is easier than on many other cars, and anyone with basic tools and a little extra time can do the job themselves.
Tools Used: Tools, Fuse puller, Fuel filter, Wrench set (metric), Ratchet, Socket set (metric)
